Last year, I wrote a piece arguing that evolution is exponential. Stephen Hawking’s has reached a similar conclusion and now believes society has arrived at the era of self designed evolution. If one tracks the advances in the field of genomics alone—as I do — it is difficult to avoid reaching a similar conclusion.
The great question before us now is whether we humans, as a species, will handle this transition wisely. I’d welcome any feedback people have on either the wisdom of “self designed evolution;” the possibility of unintended consequences; or even your ideas on how a more optimistic, transhumanist future might unfold.
